Moscow Days: Life and Hard Times in the New RussiaUser Review - Book Verdict
Dutkina is an editor and translator at a Moscow publishing house who has kept her same, respectable job and stayed in Moscow throughout the past four years of drastic change, not trying to join the new entrepreneurs. She watches as inflation erodes her salary (until food can cost 40 to 60 percent of a household budget), worries for her child's safety with the rampant crime in the city, and laments that women's lot has not improved. The complete breakdown of the former social structure has left her bewildered and unsure of whom she should admire or of how to regard the newly successful businesspeople.

Her point of view differs greatly from that of a foreign journalist on a brief posting; larger collections might consider adding this.--Marcia L. Sprules, Council on Foreign Relations Lib., N.Y.
